Best shell, non-insulated jacket for ~$200?

686 has a few interesting options. So does AirBlaster. Any others?

That homeschool jacket is really good. I really like it. It's a little heavier than other shells.

However, I really like Arcteryx and Burton AK shells too. Also I found mountain hardware minalist jacket is pretty good.

I rode homeschool 3L stuff for a bit.

Really liked the jacket and pants. Super breathable.

My waterproof membrane separated from the fabric of the jacket.

Thought they had a lifetime warranty. Wore the jacket maybe 10 days max.

No warranty, no help from the homeschool boys.

They seemed like rad guys when they were in my shop, too bad they couldn't stand behind their product. YMMV.

13/14 days
60/75

14/15 days
let's not talk about it

check out the bonfire arc jacket if your budget is $200

with end of season sales...take a look at trew...retail is expense...but may be able to snag one for cheaper.
